At half-past 8 o'clock yesterday
evening as the passenger train on
the Sonth Caroline Itailway, due in
Charleston at 9.38 o'clock, was run
ning into Reeves's a misplaced switch
threw it on the side track against a
freight train.
Both engines were smashed to
atoms, ss the passenger train was
running at a frightful rate, estimated
at forty-five miles an hour. Engin
eer J. C. Hunnicutt was instantly
killed, being crashed into a jelly, and
Fireman McKoy, colored, was badly
The passengers were jarred and
thrown from their seats, but no harm
was done to them. Tbe engineer and
fireman were the only persons in
jured. The body of the engineer
and the wounded fireman came in on
the train at 2.15 this morning.
The engineer leaves a family in
Atlanta, Georgia. 4 large crowd
was at the Line street Station, not
withstanding the unseasonable hour
this morning to see the train come
in. The body of the engineer was a
ghastly sight and the fireman was
moaning piteously.
A passenger told a Reporter of
the News and Courier that the effect of
the jar was terrible, throwing people
ten feet from their seats, and in some
instances against the top of the car.
Both engines and about twenty cars
were wrecked.-News and Courier.

remarked the washerwoman on Mon

The cow-boy sleeps with his sad

overtakes him, eats at any camp
where favor or fortune drives him,
and in turn is ever ready to assist
or divide with his fellowman-who
perchance drops in on him, resting
at his cabin or beneath the shade
shelter of some trees, as the case
may be. The genuine Texas cow
boy was hardly ever known to do
a mean or cowardly ast, but his

peculiarly interesting to see one so

Strange as this may seem it is only
about two years ago that a party of
four gentlemen entered one of the
lowest of the Bowery Dives. It was
near the hour of midnight and the
proprietor was preparing to close.
Among the painted and bedizened
females who thronged the place was
one whose brazen behavior chal
lenged the sharpest criticismn. The
gentlemen gazed at her intently
and at last drew her into con
versation in her native tongue
German, and it was soon established
that this wretched painted creature
was the heiress to a vast fortune and
a title besides. So infatuated was
she with her vile life that it required
all their powers of persuasion to in
duce her to abandon it; at last she
yielded, and in a couple of weeks
after sailed for Germany to enter
into her title and her vast posses
sions. Stranger than all this is the
impositions successfully practised
year after year by clever swindlers,
and the dear public seem never to
tire of being gulled. Only a few
years ago a magnific"nt Turk ap
peared among us ; just imagine a
most fascinating and engaging and
deluding Turk. He was here to pur
chase for the Turkish. government
500,000 stand of arms, 200 cannon
and five million of rounds of fixed
ammunition. He was a catch in a
mercantile sense, and various large
manufacturers sought his acquaint
ance, loaded him with presents, and
very humbly solicited his favor. More
than one anxious mamma inquired
how many wives he had on the Bos
pborus, and if there were not more
than five she was willing to let her;
darling go. At any rate his magnifi
cent 'lurkship had a jolly good time.
He hived on the fat of the land, he
wore the nobbiest of clothes, for the
extent of his Turkish wardrobe was
a dandy little fez; the rest of his
costume beipg in the very height of
the prevailing fashion clean down to
his patent leather gaiters. This
wicked Turk made love to all the
pretty girls he met, and he promised
at least a round dozen of them to re
nounce Mohammadism and turn
Christian for their sake.
To make a long story short one
morning he turned up missing; his
hotel was out nearly $1000; he
had borrowed right and left of every
body who would lend, and even
captured several diamond rings from
the girls he had engaged himself to.
Then on inquiry they found out what
they might have found out before that
the Turk was no Turk; but a very
clever Jew who was well known in
Constantinople, where he had been
imprisoned for swindling, and more
than once he had suffered from the
bastinado. Fashionable society which
had feted him was shocked-but it
pocketed the insult.and imposition
and said nothing about it; and waited
for the next. He soon came in the
person of an English nobleman, a
regular tip top swell. He set up an
establishment here that an English
nobleman might envy. His coronet
was on everything-his carriage, his
paper and the buttons of his lackey's
coat. His dog-cart was a sight, and
it was said that his drag was the finest
ever seen, but it hadn't arrived. He
captured the town, painted it a bright
vermillion, and succeeded in making
himself a nine days wonder. He too
has disappeared, and the places that
knew him once will know him no more

We see no reason whatever wyany

had been to hear Blind Tom-the most
wonderful musical prodigy that ever
lived. There is only one Blind Tom.
He is genuine, and Is greeted with de
light by crowded houses wherever he
goes. The above notice is the first we
liave seen intimating that there was a
single person livin ashamed or afraid
to acknowledg at he had been to
one of these concerts. Blind Tom has
been in Newberry twice. Both times
he had full, paying houses. We hope
be will live to come again. People ride
a. long distance to hear him play. His
Imitation of the music box, guitar, ora

grand and remarkable. Then to thin1r

of the most difficult compositions of all
the grand masters in the world. It Is
beyond comprehension.
This mysterions musical manifesta.
tion beyond anythin the world had
witnessed-a psycholgclmystery
has appeared before the dle of thegreat
cities of the world. His power is simply
an exhibition of the power of mind over
matter. His performance upon the piano
p roves that all the senses are but a mo
dification of the sense of touch. His re
tentive faculties and his intuition aet
with the rapidity of light and shatter, as
It were, the darkness which envelopes
him, by the splendor of his execution.
Nothing in music upon the piano seems
impossible to Tom. To play with both
hands and sing at the same time, each
key being distinct from the other, shows
how wondrously kind nature, in her law
of compensation and rewards, has been
to this blind and almost idiotic creature.

remarkably headlstrong family. His
father before . him was constantly
ioing -extraordinary things, and no
sooner had his friends recovered
from one snock than he gave thein
another, the second generally being
much worse than the first. Mr. Bee
cher in his Friday night discourse ap
peared to think that the difference of
opinion i - the congregation was a
v,ery slight affair and lie gave his
::ttditors to understand that in the
thirty-eight years they had been as
sociated together that he had always
had his own way and he intended to
have it to the last, or in other words
he said to the people who are paying
hun $25,000 for thirty-eight or forty
week's work, if you don't like my

Friday night's meeting which have
not been absent for years, not small
men but those who have been re
garded as the pillars of the church,
who have been foremost in its coun
cils and whose aid financialy has
never been withheld. Their places
were vacant, and though several of
them turned up to prevent open
scandal, yet the Friday night meet
ing.is the social weekly event of Ply.
mouth church, and from that they
were conspicuously absent. During
the week three of the pillars of the
church have given the Plymouth pas
tor a public excoriation. When men
like S. V. White. Gen. Stewart Wood
ford and A. W. Tenny speak out in
meeting, it means something, and
we will be better able to tell after
election whether the defection is fa
tal and permanent. Still Mr. Bee
cher does not quail and at an Inde
pendent meeting last week he struck
back at his foes with a trenchant
power that caused a tremendous rat
tling among the dry bones. This
election will be celebrated for years
to come for the severing o' party
ties and the sundering of old time
friendships, to an extent never be
fore experienced in our history.
Some of the men who stood by the
cradle of the Republican party are
now the most ardent friends of the
DemoQcratic candidate; and life-long
Democrats whose fealty to the party
was never suspected, are following
the forlorn fortunes of Butler or are
openly working for Blaine. A prog
nostic as to results will be much
safer on the fifth of November than
on the third. It is the desire of
every one that the whole affair was
over. Whichever party wins, the
election will have left a demoralizing
effect behind, from which it will take
us months to recover. One of the
worst features of the campaign being
the manner in which the most dis
reputable elements colne to the sur
face and assume an importance
which is destructive of order and of
law, Known criminals are publicly
courted by the opposing candidates,
and magistrates tremble in the pres
ence of the thieves who are brought
before them. The Judge on the
bench and the rascal whom he sen
tences are altogether too closely re
lated. I don'tL know whether it would
be any better to elect the judges for
life ov during good behaviour ; one
thing is very certain, and that is that
nothing can be much worse than the
present state of affairs.

This week a Baron and Baroness
have been discovered, the Baron

rags. These two were none of your

The Baron too had his castle and re
tainers, but he offended the Emperor
by his marriage and he was banished
from Court. Burning with revenge
at his disgrace he joined a party of
revolutionists, and on the defeat of
his party was forced to fly the coun
try. He reached the United States
having little after paying his pas
sage but his wife's jewels. They
parted with these precious souvenirs
one by one, till at last all were golfe.
Neither of them had been brought up
to labor and they could not seem to
learn the language of our country,
and their means being exhausted
they sunk into the direst poverty.
Hunger and misery drove the proud
nobleman into the streets and after a
time he got work as a common labor

the chiffoniers as they gathcred the
